Pediatrician 's  Response

Your grand daughter is likely to be suffering from a rash due to insect bite or dust mite .However allergic rash or dermatitis cannot be ruled out without having a closer look at the arsh.

At present you could apply a calmine lotion on the lesion .

Watch for increase in size or appearance of multiple similar rash.If it happens get her examined by her doctor.

Take care.

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Your granddaughter is having some allergy or insect bite.
Relax,there is nothing to worry.
I suggest you to apply calamine lotion 2 to 3 times and watch for any increase in rash or any fever and in that case i suggest you to get her examined by pediatrician as physical examination will be needed for proper management.

Wishing her good health.
God bless..
